Review – Carcass: Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel

Posted by

One of the biggest moments in recent Metal history was the announcement of the return of Carcass, not just for a string of shows but into the studio. 1996’s Swawnsong marked the group’s fifth and then final new full-length effort, but 2013 would see that fact change. Earlier that year, the Captive Bolt Pistol EP was unleashed ahead of the group’s long hoped for sixth studio album Surgical Steel, a recording that left the Metal world split right down the middle. You either loved it, or you hated it. But that wasn’t all. Bonus tracks were on special and import editions, there’s the Decibel Flexi Disc of the Zochrot single, not to mention a split in early 2014 with Cerebral Bore. But, if you didn’t have the money or knowledge of these additional songs, Carcass and Nuclear Blast have you covered with Surgical Remission / Surplus Steel, an EP considered a tying up of loose ends according to frontman Jeff Walker. But is this collection of b-sides and one unreleased cut worth picking this companion piece up, or was there a reason these were all left behind in the first place?
